There kind of solid object will determine the formula that will be used to find its volume.
You determine the mass of an object using a balance. For liquid volume, you would use a graduated cylinder. To find the volume of a regular solid, use the appropriate geometric formula. If the solid is irregular, use the water displacement method for finding volume.
When you are trying to find the volume of an irregularly shaped object.
A prism is a solid geometric object. If you know its shape and dimensions you can calculate its volume.
Irregular solid volume is still measured in cm3 etcTo Find the Volume of an irregular object you can,Measure out a proportional amount of water to the object you are finding the volume ofPut the object in the container of waterSee how much the water has risen byYou now have the volume!!(The difference between the new and old volumes of water is the volume
If the object is a regular geometric shape, you use the volume formula. If the object has an irregular shape, use the water displacement process.
The method for determining the volume of a solid depends on its shape. The volume of a solid object with a regular geometric shape (rectangular box, cube, cylinder, sphere) can be determined using the volume formula for the shape. Because many objects are not regularly shaped their volume cannot be determined using a volume formula. The volume of these objects can be found by water displacement. A volume of water sufficient to cover the object is placed in a graduated cylinder and the volume read. The object is added to the cylinder and the volume read again. The difference between the two volumes is the volume of the object.
You are finding the volume of the solid figure.To find the volume of a solid figure, depending on the size of the object, you can use a graduated cylinder. You can fill the cylinder up to x amount of water and then measure the amount after dropping the solid into the water, and then subtract the amount before, from the amount after, to get the volume of a solid. You can also use simple mathematics to figure the volume of the solid. There are different formulas for calculating volume for different types of solid figures.
You need to find volume by displacement instead of by formula when the object is not a regular solid. It could be an object like a pen where the height, weight, and length can't be easily measured, or a liquid.
The formula for calculating the volume of a cuboid is width x length x height
It depends on the solid.
